Describing oneself, especially in Western society, implies unequivocally defining "what you do" and not "who you are", a highly imprecise synecdoche.
If I had to define who I am, I would describe myself as a curious, passionate and persevering person, one who is eager to learn and is stimulated by continuous growth.
What I do has varied depending on the circumstances I’ve encountered in my life. These include being a professional dancer, working in the academic and business world and now coaching.
Due to an injury that prevented me not only from continuing my career as a professional dancer but from walking for many years, I was forced to reimagine myself at all levels. I believe this firsthand experience with adversity allows me to speak with authority when talking about what it means to reinvent oneself.
I learned the meaning of tenacity, perseverance and resilience from my daily coexistence with pain and through various processes of rehabilitation, physical recovery and therapy. Thanks to this, I discovered the absolute passion I feel for simply being alive, and it encouraged me to try to pave the way for others who are just beginning this journey.
In addition to my personal and professional experiences, I bring a multidisciplinary education to my coaching work. I have a degree in Humanities from University Pompeu Fabra, one in Contemporary Dance from the Institut del Teatre of Barcelona and another in Performing Arts from New York University Tisch School of the Arts. My background in startups and small business, and my traveling and expatriate experience as a digital nomad, have also served me well on my path to continuous reinvention.
The need to continually rethink who I am led me to coaching. My life experience compels me to help others find their way, to become what they want to be and to design the life they want to live.
